*Scotland have been replaced by New Zealand as the latter decided to withdraw from the tournament owing to “extensive mandatory quarantine restrictions for minors on their return home”, because of Covid-19. Scotland, who had fallen short in the Europe qualifiers, were included as the 16th team in New Zealand’s absence.
ICC U19 World Cup 2022 format
The format will see the top two teams from each of the four groups advance to the Super League knockout stage.
But those who don’t qualify will earn crucial playing time in the Plate competition to compete for positions 9 to 16, which will run concurrently with the main tournament. It means every team will play the same number of games.
